I had college orientation for my new university today, and the experience itself was exauhsting, super frustrating, and mildly terrifying. Good news is, my parents finally understand why this whole college funding thing is freaking me out so bad. The funny part is that the college I'm going to is on the lower end of tuition as far as universities run. It's all one big huge headache because lord knows what they're going to do about it. It's like it would kill them to just tell me what they're doing and stick to it.
I haven't really been writing entries because my thoughts just haven't been organized enough for that. I move out to the dorms August 16th, and since there are summer classes, there probably won't be much interruption in internet access, which won't matter to alot of you since I haven't been finding the time to post anyway.
I ordered all my books and they should arrive in a couple days, then I have several books to start on right off the bat since I'm taking Script analysis and Novel, which both have about four books to read each. I'm also taking a psych class, which could be a major mistake because the last one I was in nearly killed me. Hopefully this teacher won't be quite so test-happy. Then I have a writers workshop, and Critical approaches to lit, which I just took because it's part of my major.
The dorm room are tiny and I find out the begining of next month whether I have a roommate or not, but either way the stuff I bring up there is going to have to be limited. Most of my things are not stuff I absolutely need, but the issue is where they'll be safe until I get back.
Once I get used to my classload I'm going to start working at the school to help pau for things and make sure I'm not broke all the time. Right now it sounds like a steep price to pay to be out of my parents house, but I'm sure once I stop worrying about it so much, I'll actually have a second or two to enjoy myself.
I'm not sure about taking 16 credits first semester in, so if you want to throw some advice my way-
I have to take atleast 12 credits to be a full-time student, right now if I need to, I can afford to drop one of these two classes-
Novel, or Criticical approaches to literature. Both are three credits, both are held Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Both I have already ordered my books for. Both I have little to no idea about the content of the class.
